from the Organising Chair of Singapore Colorectal Week 2021
Dear friends and colleagues,
As the Organising Chairman, it is my great pleasure to announce that Singapore Colorectal Week (SCW) will be held on 14th and 15th August 2021.
Year 2020 has brought unique challenges in organising large scale onsite conferences, so it has been decided that SCW in 2021 will be a hybrid conference. On 14th August 2021, it will be an onsite conference for local delegates and on 15th August 2021, it will be a virtual conference for local as well as international delegates.
The theme for SCW 2021 will be “Colorectal Surgery: moving with the times” which is in sync with the current uncertain times. Besides challenges, virtual meetings have also given us an opportunity to seek some of the world-renowned experts. The Organising Committee has come up with an academic programme based on the best practices and cutting-edge technology in colorectal surgery. Plenary lectures by distinguished local and international speakers have been organised to share and discuss updated management in colorectal and anal diseases.
I hope SCW 2021 will be a grand success with your participation and I am looking forward to welcoming you all for SCW 2021 hybrid conference.
Dr. Surendra Mantoo
